Plenty of deer in the area. Trophies will depend on you and your neighbors. If you are looking to fill the freezer, it is a good area to that.
This...I hunt southwest of there and there are definitely good numbers but a trophy, if you use inches as a yardstick will most likely be in the mid 120s and not because the area won't produce them but as stated above there's just not a lot of management minded hunters in the area. We got a nice 3 year old 10 this year on camera and he will not make it through the year unfortunately unless he goes nocturnal becaiuse the first hunter that sees him is going to put him down. I really like the lease I'm on and the only thing that gives me heartburn is that although we talk about management it's all out the window once the season starts. And frankly with the out of state hunters that come in each year on the back side of our lease filling all their tags...there simply isn't any management program that will really really work. A singular low fence lease is dependent of all the leases around it to agree to management criteria if you really want to grow big antlered bucks. And to do this these hunters have to be willing to shell out their money for at least three years while taking only culls and does before they will even begin to be able to take 140-150 class bucks...and perhaps a 160. Not many will sacrifice this long.
